Ok, so, when I'm eating, I'm am always aware that it might not be staying down for long, and wonder which food I'm going to particularly regret.

For example last week, tuna pasta was NOT good.

Activia yoghurt....not too bad.

What are the best and worst foods when coming back up?!?!

Apparently pineapple and raspberries taste the same coming up as they do going down!

Gingernuts, IME experience of fairly gruesome morning sickness, tend to stay down.

Any bread products are horrific. Flavoured milk is okay. Fizzy juice is not. Hot chocolates okay. Yogurt if its straight back up. Homemade lumpy soups are not. I had hyperemesis and was being sick up to 30 times a day for nine months. The still drinks that come in bottles such as powerade are good to sip slowly throughout the day when sick to keep your energy levels up.

Spaghetti is bad. Very bad.

From three HG pregnancies I would say avoid;
Citrus fruits eg oranges (string together on the way back up)
Milk/Cheese/ Yoghurt (curdles)
Anything with ginger (burns)
Anything with bead or cake texture (clumps)
Fruit juice

Best things I found were plain rice, flat lemonade and boiled sweets (but be aware red ones look like blood blush)

In my first undiagnosed HG pregnancy I would only eat a bite or two of anything new so I could test it first shockgrin

Very bland food is the best. I remember weetabix being ok and really plain pasta meals like shop-bought carbonara. Fruit is ok. Avoid anything like curry.

Tinned peaches!

littleloopylou Wed 20-Jan-21 13:35:56

Porridge is brilliant for this.

trifleandbaileys Wed 20-Jan-21 13:36:25

Sorry- tinned peaches were good for me- quite a nice taste coming back up blush

reservoircats Wed 20-Jan-21 13:37:54

The worst for me were anything spiced - paprika crisps were the worst.
Tea was also very bad.
Soup was good and so was buttery bread smile

Bananas are good coming back up. Agree about the awfulness of tea!

kalidasa Wed 20-Jan-21 13:41:08

Ha I am a total expert on this. Bread and potatoes both bad -- potatoes surprisingly painful to vomit, not sure why.

Milk stuff OK as long as it's not been down there too long.

Coke dreadful -- it was often one of the few things I could keep down but it's horrible to vomit if you don't.

Fruit can be bad -- the acid hurts. I couldn't eat fruit at all for months after my first HG pregnancy -- had to retrain myself to eat lots of things.

Oddly, I found sweet tea the one thing that tasted almost identical both ways.

I found cream cheese sandwiches in white bread and french toast were OK. Which is lucky as they were pretty much the only things I could eat for several months.

Humpty11 Wed 20-Jan-21 13:44:21

Definitely agree that bananas aren’t too bad coming back up.
Anything citrus or fizzy was horrible and the worst in my opinion was mince 🤢🤮🤮

LlamaPjama Wed 20-Jan-21 13:44:54

For me ice pops, ice lollies, ribena, ready salted crisps.

Absolute no - anything ginger based, lettuce (I still struggle to eat it now) and anything with dairy

Thisisbananas3 Wed 20-Jan-21 13:59:11

Like PP said no ginger, you vomit fire.

I found fruit juices burned.

I’ve avoided anything with onion and garlic because the smell alone makes me heave.

Bland stuff has been ok for me- fruit, porridge, toast, croissants, hot cross buns, weetabix.

Hope the sickness subsides for you!

superram Wed 20-Jan-21 14:00:43

I second ice pops and ice lollies.

BigusBumus Wed 20-Jan-21 14:03:40

Ice cream if thrown up straight away is just like melted ice cream, basically.

TheQueef Wed 20-Jan-21 14:03:55

Ice cream no bits.
It's especially nice if it's still cold.
vom a lot

KylieKangaroo Wed 20-Jan-21 14:04:24

Tomato pasta sauce was the worst, I think I've been put off for life!

TheQueef Wed 20-Jan-21 14:04:27

Xp BigB smile

TheQueef Wed 20-Jan-21 14:05:10

Dark chocolate is evil. It changes with saliva and becomes lava.

Hoppinggreen Wed 20-Jan-21 14:06:44

Peppermint tea
Probably won’t come back up but if it does it’s basically the same as when it went down
